Assessment Brief

You have been asked to provide guidance to a local farm park. This is a relatively small organisation, with just 25 permanent employees. However, during the summer months the number of employees increases threefold due to the extra work that comes from local tourists visiting the park. 

A number of issues have arisen, and you are required to advise on each. To assist you in your deliberations, the issues have been grouped into three sections.  

You should provide a written response to the employer, with approximately 1000 words for each of the three sections

  1. With the significantly increased workforce during the summer months, it is always difficult to predict what the actual workforce needs will be:

  • Describe at least two internal and two external factors that impact on the employment relationship.

  • The employer is not sure whether the individuals who work on a temporary basis during the summer months are employees or not. Explain the different types of employment status that exist so that the employer is aware of them all.

  • Using at least two examples, identify and analyse for the employer why it is important to determine the employment status of the individuals working at the park.

  1. The work can be very demanding during the summer months. There have been occasions in the past when some of the temporary employees are working very long hours, and complaining about this.

  • Explain the importance of work-life balance within the employment relationship and how it can be influenced by legislation.  Refer to at least three employment rights from the legislation.

  • Focussing on two key areas, summarise the legal support that may be given to employees as a family member.

  • Using two examples, explain why employees should be treated equally in terms of pay.

  • Summarise the main points of UK discrimination legislation, and how this might affect the approach to temporary employees.  Refer to at least two forms of discrimination in your answer.

  • Explain how effective organisational policies can contribute to and affect the psychological contract

  1. The last summer brought about some significant problems relating to the permanent employees. The employer is concerned that the issues were not addressed correctly. Advise the employer about the following:

  • The differences between fair and unfair dismissals including five potentially fair reasons for dismissal.

  • During the summer five of the permanent employees resigned. Explain the importance and benefits of holding exit interviews with employees who are leaving the organisation.

  • Finally, the employer has a question for the future. The farm park has been struggling. If it were to make up to 10 employees redundant what process should it follow?
